TEDxGotham 2011- Slavic Soul Party! - Balkan gypsy musical mashup

Recorded live at the TEDxGotham's 2011 event at NASDAQ in New York City. Throbbing funk grooves, fiery Balkan brass, Gypsy accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops make Slavic Soul Party! NYC's official #1 brass band for BalkanSoul GypsyFunk. SSP! has created an acoustic mash-up of Balkan and Romani (Gypsy) sounds with North American music, weaving the gospel, techno, funk, dub, jazz, and Latin influences of New York's neighborhoods seamlessly into a Balkan brass setting. SSP!'s music has won the ear of fans and musicians on both sides of the Atlantic, and their tunes have been learned by Serbian brass stars Boban Markovic Orkestar and New Orleans funk sensations Galactic, among others. In addition to touring in the US, Europe, Mexico, and Africa, SSP! holds down a residency every Tuesday in Brooklyn which has become a destination for music fans from around the world.About TEDxIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
